Book cover for Pause and Reverse
Pause and Reverse

, written by Brett Kotlus, MD, an Oculoplastic surgeon in New York, offers a refreshing perspective on the pursuit of youthful appearance, presenting a comprehensive guide on achieving age-defying results both through non-invasive techniques and cosmetic procedures. Written with a blend of expertise and accessibility, the book navigates through various aspects of skin care, lifestyle adjustments, and cosmetic interventions, providing valuable insights for readers seeking to maintain or enhance their youthful appearance. 

One of the notable strengths of the book lies in its balanced approach. Rather than advocating for a one-size-fits-all solution, the author emphasizes the importance of understanding individual needs and preferences. The book explores a range of options, from simple skincare routines and dietary tips to advanced cosmetic procedures, allowing readers to make informed choices tailored to their specific circumstances. 

Moreover, Pause and Reverse stands out for its evidence-based approach. Backed by scientific research and expert opinions, the book dispels common myths surrounding aging and beauty, offering reliable information to help readers distinguish between fact and fiction in the realm of skincare and cosmetic enhancements.

For example, Dr. Brett Kotlus MD Age-defying skincare, specifies that the most effective anti-aging regimen consists of a topical vitamin C, to halt wrinkles. He identifies 5 mistakes you need to avoid so you never look "done," which are: taking things too far which can make you look artificial, neglecting to use sunscreen on the hands and décolletage, freezing the forehead with Botox, ignoring your chin if it is off balance to the rest of your face, and brushing off a skin maintenance schedule.  He also talks about ways to get rid of eye bags without surgery, and so much more.

Furthermore, the author's writing style is engaging and accessible, making complex concepts easily digestible for readers of all backgrounds. Whether discussing the science behind skincare ingredients or demystifying the process of cosmetic surgery, the book maintains a conversational tone that keeps readers engaged from cover to cover.

However, one potential drawback of the book is its extensive focus on cosmetic procedures. While the author acknowledges the importance of holistic approaches to anti-aging, such as healthy lifestyle habits and skincare routines, the emphasis on cosmetic surgery might deter readers who prefer non-invasive methods or have reservations about surgical interventions.

Dr. Brett Kotlus is a board-certified ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgery. He has expertise in a range of cosmetic procedures, including eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty), brow lifts, and facial rejuvenation techniques. Dr. Kotlus is known for his innovative approaches to cosmetic surgery and his dedication to achieving natural-looking results for his patients. He practices in New York City and is affiliated with various medical centers in the area.

In conclusion, Pause and Reverse offers a comprehensive and insightful guide to achieving a youthful appearance, catering to readers with diverse preferences and priorities.
